    Need some feedback. I fitted a 3" Toytec lift kit to my 2008 Tacoma SR5 4WD. Since then, I have noticed a shuddering in the drivetrain every time I move off. If I move off hard, the whole driveshaft slaps up and down as if it is going to tear off. I have checked all mounts and actually replaced the drive shaft centre bearing, but still have the problem. My truck has the TRD Sport package with the limited slip diff. Any suggestions to troubleshoot this problem?? Thanks in advance.

    getting there....
    your best bet...and cheapest....is to add some spacers to the carrier bearing.....drop it a quarter inch and see what happens.
